On Monday, March 28th, I celebrated Easter as it should be with a half-day at the Spa My Blend by Clarins.

The place :
Located in one of the most beautiful Parisian palaces, the Royal Monceau, the place is worth a visit. Only a few steps separate the Spa from the lobby bar. Once there you are directly immersed in a luxurious white paradise.

The lovely person at the reception takes you on a quick tour of the premices and lets you enjoy the facilities designed by Philippe Starck. I booked a treatment at 11am but I came earlier. So I took the time to discover all of this well-being temple which spreads out over 1500m² !
Even the locker room is worth seeing; with its reflective lockers the place seems infinite. Towels, bathrobes and Clarins products are at discretion.
Coming out of the locker room, you arrive directly on the huge indoor 23 meter long pool (the largest pool for a Parisian Palace). If you have the chance to go there on a sunny day, you can admire the huge skylight that adds a little extra touch of luxury, not to mention the white curtains and mirror sets (the Royal Monceau touch!) That gives a feeling of permanent lightness.
Here, no deckchairs but huge antique chairs covered in plush cushions for lounging and to feel like at home (only better).

A Japanese bath with warmer water than the pool is also available for the not so braves…

A few steps away, you can relax at the Spa Bar, which offers a selection of teas as well as fruit juices, Pierre Hermé macaroons, and other nuts.
Then comes the relaxation area with sauna, hammam and original thematic showers “tropical storm or Siberian night» everyone will find the atmosphere of their choice.
NB : the Spa also offers a sports area with many facilities and relatively quiet for those tempted by a sporty but quiet moment.

The treatment :
The treatment is no exception. The masseuses come & greet you wherever you are in the Spa and guide you to your cabin. Music ready sets the tone for relaxation.
They invite you to lie down on a heated table. The warm oil used will avoid you to have chills. They are a great discretion and very like I rarely ever experienced before. Suitable pressure, choice of oil fragrance and exclusive Clarins products. My Blend is a unique range of fully personalized skin care products and designed for the specific needs of each skin.
